Judith Cunningham is an educator and the founder of Montessori Model UN. Judith founded MMUN to help students find their voices, take action and build peace as a way of honoring Maria Montessori’s legacy and implementing her dream of world peace. While MMUN provides awareness and understanding of global/ local problems, the next step is action. The Youth Impact Forum empowers students to design and implement humanitarian projects aligned with the SDGs. Through YIF students have the opportunity to showcase their projects and secure partners and mentorship for sustainability. Together MMUN and YIF provide an educational platform for a youth movement to create a better
world. We believe that globally conscious, active students are the key to constructing greener communities and a more sustainable, equitable planet.
Judith holds a Master of Education, post graduate work in Alternate Dispute Mediation and an Association Montessori Internationale diploma.
